Harmon played two years at Oklahoma before transferring to Oregon last year where he averaged 10.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.3 steals, and just 1.5 turnovers a game in about 31 minutes a game while shooting 41.5% from the field, 36.7 from 3-point range, and 73.4% from the free throw line. As far as advanced stats are concerned, Harmon is not much of a rebounder at all at the guard position, but he has an extremely low turnover rate and his steal rate is exceptional. The assist rate isn’t elite by any means, but there were two players who generally handled that for Oregon last year (that doesn’t prohibit him from doing it), but generally speaking Harmon has not been a high assist guy for his career. As far as shooting is concerned, Harmon makes just 35% of his far 2-point shots and amazingly just 53% of his close 2-point shots. The 36% from 3-point land isn’t bad and would have been 3rd on the team last year behind Bryson Williams and Terrence Shannon.
I should add that when I went to the spring game and sat right next to Michael LaBarre (technically Youssouf was between us) he said that there were rumors about Harmon coming to Texas Tech at that point, so this has been in the works for a while.
Red Raider Sports’ Chase Champlin spoke to Harmon about his commitment, among other things:
…What is the best part of your game and what do you plan on helping Texas Tech with?
“I don’t want to get too much into my game because I just want to get out there and show it but I want to bring the best version of myself on and off the court. I want to go win a national championship, be the best teammate I can be on and off the floor, and be the best leader I can be, and then everything else will take care of itself.”
Utah Valley center Fardaws Aimaq will make a decision about his college choice today at noon and this would be a huge addition to the team. The roster currently sits at 11, which means there are 2 spots remaining (presuming no one else decides to transfer) and we’ll see where things end up.
Love this game to my core🖤 pic.twitter.com/m0d4jIZWGG
